What is a Consulting Agreement?
A Consulting Agreement is a contract which sets out the terms and conditions for the provision of consultancy services. The agreement is normally made between a company (the “principal”) and a service provider (the “consultant”). Businesses usually engage a consultant for their expertise in a particular area, or to work on a specific project. This contract is also known as a Consultancy Agreement or Consulting Services Agreement.
